Star Australian Ben Simmons sunk a rare three-pointer as his Philadelphia 76ers continued their strong NBA season start with a 116-92 win over the Orlando Magic.
The 76ers built up a 35-point lead by half-time and were never troubled as they improved their record to 4-1 and rose to top spot in the Eastern Conference under new coach Doc Rivers.
Orlando entered the match as the last unbeaten side this season, but their woeful display meant they also ended the day at 4-1.
Five players made it into double figures for Philadelphia, but surprisingly Simmons wasn't one of them.
He ended the match with nine points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and two steals to his name.
Although his points tally was underwhelming, he did provide a scoring highlight when he nailed just the third three-pointer of his NBA career - hitting nothing but net from the corner.
Simmons was 0-17 from long range in regular-season matches during his first two years, before returning 2-of-7 last season.
Fans will be hoping it becomes a more regular occurence, with the pressure increasing on Simmons to produce bigger numbers.
Joel Embiid (21 points), Seth Curry (21) and Tobias Harris (20) all played key roles in the win.
